Step 1

Preheat the oven to 395 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2

Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl and add the sugar. Using an electric mixer or a whisk, mix until well combined.

Step 3

Add the cream cheese, flour and heavy cream and whisk again until smooth.

Step 4

Line an 8-inch springform pan with parchment paper, making sure that the paper extends above the rim of the pan. This will prevent the cheesecake from overflowing over while baking.

Step 5

Pour the cake batter into the springform pan.

Step 6

Bake the cheesecake in the oven at 395 degrees Fahrenheit with top and bottom heat. The baking time will depend on your preferred texture: about 35 minutes for runny, 40 minutes for creamy, and 45 minutes for fully cooked. Every oven cooks slightly differently, so your exact baking time may vary.

Step 7

Once cooked and the top is golden brown, turn off the oven and let the cheesecake cool inside with the door slightly open.

Step 8

When the cake has cooled noticeably, remove it from the oven and let it cool on the counter until it reaches room temperature. Transfer it to the refrigerator and chill for at least 3 hours, or ideally overnight.
